Inquiring minds want to know what's on Larry Kramer's phone. "The apps on someone's phone reveal a lot about their personality and how they spend their time," said Kramer. "Flight schedules, getting to speaking gigs on time and making sure I know the score are all important to me and these are the apps that help."
